PERROTTET, George David
Used Signed Quantity: 1
Seller:

Book Description Traces of earlier mounting (usually stamp hinges) to the reverse of ten plates, with minimal visible impact near the top edge of a few of them; overall, the collection is in fine condition. All the bookplates are recorded by Peake. George David Perrottet (1890-1971), 'although technically an amateur artist, was one of Australia's most admired and prolific bookplate designers, producing over 220 bookplates between 1929 and 1964' (Mark Ferson, in The New Australian Bookplate Society Newsletter, Number 16, March 2010). Most of the bookplates are linocuts: 52 are printed in two or more colours, 27 are signed, and one is hand-coloured. (This one is for Marcie Collett; two other bookplates are also signed by Perrottet and inscribed in pencil to her. She is better known as Marcie Muir, the pioneering bibliographer of Australian children's books, and the wife of H.B. Muir - see below.) Four plates are present in two variants (the plates for L.O. Cheever and S.V. Hagley are printed in different colours; the plate for Ruth Penfold on two different paper stocks; and the plate for Coral Elphic trimmed and untrimmed). 'All his bookplates exhibit varied qualities of excellence. Whether it be landscape, architecture, allegory, symbolism, heraldic or a purely personal motif, there is not a dull line, an insipid conception, inadequate technique; and rarely a touch of the commonplace . It was his sense of colour which did much to revive the interest in colour bookplates, and there is a pleasing softness about his plates with their blues and reds, the favourite blacks and greys. But it is in his hand-coloured examples that his sense is most manifest - several such plates are a perpetual joy to the eye' (Muir, H.B.: 'The Bookplates of G.D. Perrottet', Adelaide, The Wakefield Press, 1942, page 5). Provenance: H.B. (Harry) Muir (1909-1992), bookseller, publisher and bookplate collector; by descent. [57 items]. Seller Inventory # 132822
